ROCK | Jack White 

It's been more than 10 years since The White Stripes blew up the Bug Jar stage. Ask anyone who was there --- and those who claim they were — it was the second coming of Led Zeppelin mashed with Son House. It was just two musicians, but boy, was it huge. The new stuff I've heard on visionary Jack White's latest solo release, "Boarding House Reach," is amazingly beguiling, angular, and obtuse. He continues to captivate and amaze. White mixes deep roots with blasts of sonic sci-fi elation. The music comes at you from all sides and flies in the face of his penchant for all things monochromatic. I miss The White Stripes, but I gotta say this shit is amazing.

Jack White plays Thursday, June 7, at The Dome, 2695 East Henrietta Road. 8 p.m. $57.50. therocdome.com; jackwhiteIII.com.
